1st May - 31st May 2018
Walk in the Woods is the The Tree Council's festival to encourage everyone to enjoy trees and woods. Across the UK, walks, talks and other events take place in town and countryside - an invitation to go down to the woods or to a local park or just enjoy tree-lined streets. Flowers, birdsong and leaf colour make them particularly inviting.
Walk in the Woods is a great opportunity to organise an event and get new people interested in trees - especially in their local patch. A particular aim of Walk in the Woods is to attract people who rarely, if ever, visit woods - even those on their doorstep.
Interested in getting involved? All events can be found on our Near You map. To find out about some of the things that have taken place in your area, you can look at past events. If you're interested in organising your own event, read further to get some useful tips on how to organise exciting walks and other activities. Don't forget to list your event on our website, so that other people can come and join you!
If you want to get as much local involvement as possible, why not use The Tree Council's poster for Walk in the Woods? You can download the 2018 poster for free and use this as many time you want to promote your event. Just fill in the details of when and where your event is taking place, or a contact number for information, and put it up on local notice boards.
When your out on your walk, don’t forget to record your bluebell sightings for the Woodland Trust's Bluebell Watch
